I would add this.

Don't put yourself in a position that you can't walk away from. If the trailer is not to your liking don't take it. My PDI on my 1st 5er took 6 hours and was incomplete and I wouldn't leave until all items where written done with the GM signature stating they would cover everything. My vacation plans were already set camping for 2 weeks (packing started when I got home with the 5er). Hindsight being 20/20 I should have walked on the Stevie Wonder Edition.

They ended up buying it back 7 months later. I will say Funtown Waco kept their word and made everything right.

Don't hesitate to pass if it's not up to par.

Lose the 2nd and the rest will follow.

If you have a camcorder, video the portions of the demo that you think you may be later confused about once you get your camper home.

I agree now with a very good look over on delivery. I took delivery of my brand new 2015 solaire 147x last week and while doing my PDI the dealer stepped in interupting with issues related to our pop up we were trading in. So now being upset with the dealer the pdi was not completed as well. upon arrival home i found two item not functioning. then the next day found more issues. in total 25 items of concern from simple broken screws to water under the shower. needless to say if went back immediately and also contacted forest river on product quality and poor delivery of there product
